Quarterback Rankings 2023 NFL Draft

QUARTERBACK RANKINGS 2023 NFL DRAFT

The 2022 NFL Draft was a serious disappointment when it came to quarterback talent as it only produced a single player worthy of a first-round selection (Kenny Pickett) and only four hearing their names called in the first one hundred picks. The 2023 Quarterback class by contrast has two potential superstars in the shape of Ohio State’s CJ Stroud and Alabama’s Bryce Young and also contains a number of NFL players with promising starting potential.

Bryce Young the current holder of the Heisman trophy is as of July 2022 our top ranked player. He posses an elite skillset and combines athleticism, poise, accuracy and excellent decision making - he however lacks the prototypical size you look for in an NFL signal caller.

CJ Stroud has a chance to eclipse Young this year and take his already excellent capabilities as a player to the next level. He does everything you want in a pro quarterback and excels in putting the ball where only his receivers are able to catch it.

After these two there’s a bit of a drop off in the form of Will Levis (Kentucky), Tanner McKee (Stanford), and Tyler Van Dyke (Miami) – but notably we rate all these players more highly than any from last year’s class.

One player of note, who we currently rank #7 is Spencer Rattler who suffered a major fall from grace last year after losing his starting role at Oklahoma. He transferred to South Carolina in the off-season and it will make interesting viewing seeing whether he can live up to his early hype.
